We see them in glittering gowns, tons of makeup, smiling for the shutterbugs. We see them taking flights to exotic locations, looking picture perfect in videos and all public appearances. But even our favorite celebs have moments of weakness. They are human beings, just like us, and therefore, they do deserve to break down every once in a while.

Admitting to this ordinary human nature, our very own Afreen superstar, the gorgeous Momina Mustehsan talked about having emotional breakdowns and panic attacks on her social media yesterday.

Life is incredible, but we all have moments of weakness. While we share our moments of joy and strength on social media, it’s important that we acknowledge that none of us live a picture perfect life. I have been immensely busy lately - occasionally taking multiple flights a day, running on almost no sleep and working all day every day for weeks without a single proper day of rest. All this while I had kept telling myself I was doing okay, keeping it together outwardly until I almost hit mental, emotional and physical exhaustion. I woke up yesterday having a severe panic attack because I almost hit my threshold. Yes, those are real. And they crush and paralyze you for the moment. But that moment stays for as long as you let it stay. I always try dealing with all my problems by myself, but I reach out to people close to me when I know I could use help. Please know that it’s okay to reach out for help. It doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human. If someone you care about starts behaving differently in any way, please take a moment to check whether they’re doing okay - even if they say they are fine. Sometimes all one needs is for someone to have a little faith in them and tell them that they believe in them. We are all self sufficient, but we all occasionally need that extra push and reassurance from the people that mean the most to us. To my near and dear ones that have helped me back up on my feet before I’ve fallen: Thank you. For believing in me when I find it hard to keep believing in myself. Thank you for seeing good in me when I’m unable to. For going the extra mile to help me find my strength again when I lose sight of it. Thank you for making me want to work harder to be a better human every day.

Talking about life and its nature, Momina wrote, "Life is incredible, but we all have moments of weakness. While we share our moments of joy and strength on social media, it’s important that we acknowledge that none of us live a picture perfect life."

The star girl went on to talk about surviving on no sleep and traveling with multiple flights in a week's time. Owing up to her busy schedule, Momina admitted how none of this was as easy as it looked or as glamorous as it seemed.

Also discussing the importance of reaching out and being ready to listen, Momina Mustehsan further added, "Sometimes all one needs is for someone to have a little faith in them and tell them that they believe in them. We are all self sufficient, but we all occasionally need that extra push and reassurance from the people that mean the most to us."

Life truly is unpredictable, be it celebs or the audience who adore them. When it takes a toll on a human being, it spares no one. We feel its rather brave of Momina to own up to having fears and emotional breakdowns, something which will allow her people to relate with her on a deeper level.
